  1. What do you expect? A murder most places today brings about a mere slap on the wrists, a stern don’t do it again ( but if you do we offer free meals each day, TV, and exercise and sometime air conditioning) for a couple of months. Most punishment would be considered discrimination or unjust treatment, therefore, don’t convict, because our justice system provides freedom to roam, to be cared for, and an attitude of “please don’t do it again”. After two or three more violations of the same nature maybe the powers that be actually beg— don’t repeat this action or you go to jail. This is a national problem, not just a local one. Most of our police work hard, paid little, and risk their lives each day. Government provides protection for those who break the law— in return for votes. We can vote in the near future so who is your candidate? Maybe I’m off track and wrong. Tell me.

    • heck ya prisoners have it made like you said.free meals,cable,excercise,
      weight rooms…We need more physical labor or chain gains.You broke the law
      you are a prisoner and not on vacation.I am beyond tired of my taxes paying
      for these criminals.

    • While sitting in court waiting with a friend who was a victim of a crime, I saw a young man talk to Judge Cunningham about not paying what he was supposed to paying every month. He was way behind. He had been charged with THREE COUNTS OF ATTEMPTED MURDER! and a judge allowed him to walk the streets of Natchitoches. He was charged with trying to kill three people. Really? And he’s walking the streets. He had the money to pay that day, and he left the courtroom with a smirk on his face. Yes he did, It was disgusting to see that smirk, like he was so proud of himself. I felt like I could see what he was thinking, “yeah,. I beat the system again.” There is one person committing crimes out there that I know of, and the police aren’t taking his crimes seriously, and can’t seem to solve any of them, even when a clue is staring them in the face. After weeks, they still have not checked out the info that could prove one way or the other, but nothing is done about that yet. Our courts need to get tough on crime. We don’t pay them to let people walk the street. The detention center needs to make room to house locals who break the law so that they know we are tough on crime, not a revolving door for them to be charged and get to walk back out to do more harm. What is wrong with our system. I realize it’s a national problem, but I live here, and this is the place I want straighten out now. Let the people in those cities straighten out their problems. If a national vote comes up, I will vote to correct problems. but here and now, I worry about Natchitoches.We need tougher judges, not bleeding hearts that want to continue to give these people second, third, and even fourth chances. I’m tired of the gangs, the killings, and the stealing of things all over town. I know the police could catch a few of these criminals, and I know the judges could do something about teaching these people that “CRIME DOES NOT PAY” or have we forgotten that old saying. I haven’t and I would like to hold a sign up outside the courthouse where the judges enter reminding them of that fact.
